"I expect to pass through life but once. If therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer neglect it , as I shall not pass this way again." William Penn

Another good, but busy day. Today we had PVs at four different home repair sites, plus on all important garbage pick up. Volunteers continued to attach a ramp to a trailer at one site, they continued tiling at another, and dry-walling at another, all in Hanover. At the fourth site in Lilydale, while waiting for the final roofing supplies, volunteers did many little but important repairs through out the two trailers that sit on the property. The garbage pick up crew was busy running around to different sites that we had worked on the first two weeks to pick up the trash we had left behind. After three trips up to the dump at the top of the mountain, they were able to call it a successful day.

As seems to be the trend this week, we had another wonderful meal. This time the meal was lasagne, salad and garlic bread and for dessert chocolate raspberry bars, yummy, yummy in the tummy tummy.

Reflection tonight focused on friendships and different types of friendships that exist. We shared a bit about the people we have met down here and how some of those relationships have evolved into friendships.
